Every year the Idaho Division of Veterans Services invites us to their Memorial Day Ceremony at the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery. If you go this year, keep your eyes open for these very special coins.
Road trips and barbecues are great, but Memorial Day weekend is about much more than that. The Idaho State Cemetery will give us the chance on Monday to get close to some decorated veterans, while we remember those that we've lost.
Have you ever been in a cemetery and saw coins laying on a tombstone? There is actually a reason behind it. Read more, so you can know what each coin means, and maybe as you visit a fallen soldier this Memorial Day, you can leave a coin to honor them too.
